D9.A.4.1 Design for Flexure
This program automatically calculates the Bar size and no. of bars needed to design the section. It arranges the bar in layers as per the requirements and recalculate the effective depth and redesign the sections for this effective depth.
Beams are designed for MZ only. The moment MY is not considered in flexure design
MMAG parameter can be used to increase design moment
1.4 cm. is added to the clear cover to take stirrup size into consideration for flexure design.
STAAD beam design procedure is based on the local practice and considering the fact that Japan is a high seismic zone area.
